The E-Cycling Process

Recycling Electronics is a very simple and eco-friendly process. First, all electronic items collected by MGE are evaluated to determine their most valuable, practical, and environmentally safe recycled function. As a result, some electronic items are disassembled and their components are separated for refurbishing, salvage, or scrap as e-waste and commodities. We break down, treat and/or process the used electronics we collect, making the resulting materials more suitable for reuse. Our goal is to take every piece of every electronic item we collect and  turn it into a reusable component or commodity. Once all valuable components have been salvaged for remarketing, and we are left with items that are to be scrapped, they are shredded into pieces smaller than 2 inches in diameter, and separated using a process that is 95% automated. The results include iron, copper, aluminum, plastic, glass, shredded circuit boards, precious metal mix, and other valuable materials. Some of these are further processed using our network of associated companies and other responsible recyclers.


Protection for Our Clients

Our procedures for data and product destruction protect your intellectual property, brand, and confidential data. All items are inventory tracked by serial number, ESN or asset tag at receipt to ensure the ability to audit final disposition, with the capability to link subsystem serial numbers. We are able to provide certificates of destruction, downstream auditing and approved refining solutions. Our e-cycling procedures comply with and exceed all EPA regulations and guidelines for handling e-waste and other hazardous materials. Finally our reporting provides the detail and downstream information needed to support sustainability programs and environmental impact avoidance necessary for our clients.
